Recommended to Richard by: I read a review.
Recommended for: Anyone who needs depressed.

Look carefully at the book cover illustration. No, no, look very carefully. That tells you everything you need to know about this book except it is primarily driven by sex...who is celibate and hates it; who is having it; had it; wants more; or is taking matters into their own hand.
Despite that, this is a bleak novel that should have been a novella. Here is another book that goes on and on when it should have been long gone.

Everyone is suspected of murder except the two primary police; the village guy and the city girl, and her 4 year old boy. Several confess to murder in a second story that should have been its own novella. The two tales really have a difficult connection.

Maybe I should quit looking for the next great Swedish author.
